The Second year programme introduces them to small scaled buildings, building science and services, building construction and technology. The Third year emphasizes on more complex, mid-rise building development, which integrates environmental sciences, structure, building services, construction and theory into the studio projects. In addition, students will take non-architecture electives which aim to further extend their general knowledge and exposures and reinforce what they learn.
The Bachelor of Science (Hons) Architecture programme is a recognized first tier of the two–tiers professional architecture education, complying to the Lembaga Arkitek Malaysia(LAM) Part I requirements. Students who complete this first-tier undergraduate programme can pursue the second-tier – Masters in Architecture (LAM Part II) degree to complete the five-year professional architecture training.
